Review on grey wolf 26rl?

Hi my husband and I are thinking of buying grey wolf 26rl... The one with two swivel chairs. Dry weight is around 5400 and that seems lite compared to other trailers with same features. I have heard they are not built well. I really love this model but I would appreciate any opinions. Can't wait to be part of the rv community! Riva

I don't have a review on this model but it does look like a nice floorplan! I have a Grey Wolf 19RR and am very happy with it. The quality is very good on mine.

We have a 28bh since last July and have been impressed with the value and quality. No problems at all and everything seems well built.

We the 26rl and we love it. Have done a couple of mods to personalize it. The only thing I have negative to say is that the chair backs are too low for me when watching a movie on the tv if the weather is not cooperating. I can't lean my head back and rest it on the chair. If you have any specific questions then drop me a line and I will do my best to answer them.

We also have a 26rl and Love it. Of course we are doing a few mods to personalize it also. Under the entertainment center we are taking the right side and putting in shelves and a cd-movie holder. Put the TV that came with the unit and put it in the bedroom and are putting a 32" in it's place. changing the door over the sink area from a open up to the ceiling to 2 that open up to the sides, changing the doors in the bedroom over head the same way.
I love the unit and plan on many years use.
Go and enjoy it..

I have the 26RL and it is well built, tows extremely well, very comfortable. Wish I had the dinette table n chairs but I do not think it would be as safe as the builtin dinette as there is the high step to contend with. If the slide room was a "level" slide, there would be no problem. Also wish the couch was a little farther back in the slide. This wouls aloow that few inches more for the port side chair to have just a little more room. Just minor things in the big scheme but all is well and we do enjoy the 26RL. I have made some mods i have to post to show. Just "it makes it easier to work with" kinds of things.

I agree with what you said, checkout my pics of the mods that we did..the cabnet under the tv is almost useless, until we put shelves under the right side. Now I can store the CD'S and DVD'S, we put an electric start on the stove ( going to love that), we even have a door bell, wireless of course.
Are you going to the rally in august in Indiana?
Enjoy the TT, we do.
